Terry Graves via Crowdrise
July 25, 2012
My name is Terry. I volunteered for several months in the aftermath of 9/11. As a result of breathing in toxic air the Government said was safe, i contracted a number of diseases starting in 2004.
Last Friday I was informed I have Stage IV lung cancer — and ballpark, between six and nine months to live.
I am trying to raise money first, for my family. Since I haven't worked in eight years, we are almost $36,000 in debt. I would very much like to pay down at least some of that debt. Second, I have a bucket list item that I cannot afford. I would like to vacation with my husband in Cape Cod and need $2000 to do it.
Any help you provide is much appreciated. I will not live to see Zadroga money and worry that it won't be enough to get my family out of the hole in any case.
